In the world of
up? dDerek here with another music review on one of my favorite bands: The
Deftones. The way to basically describe their music would be "A phat sound
with a twist". The Deftones are from California and have done several songs
with bands like KoRn; one of the songs being "Wicked".
first CD was called "Adrenaline". Which came out in 1995 on Maverick
records. Their second CD, called "Around the fur" came out in 1997
still under Maverick. And finally the newest CD "White Pony" came out
this year (2000). All the albums have a different sound in my opinion, both
unique and tight.
guys put on one of the best shows that I have seen. They include about 4 songs
into their set, and once the lights go out and the note on the guitar is strung,
the crowd goes nuts! At some points Chino, lead vocals, will come up to the
people who are in the front row, and will hold his microphone in their face and
let the people sing some of the verses. It’s definitely very cool! I would
suggest that if you are a huge Deftones fan that you go check them out if they
come to your area. And if you have never heard of the Deftones, I would say to
go check them out. They put on one of the best shows in the hard-core music
each of the albums:
I said before, this CD came out in 1995. This is my second out of the three.
This CD has well known songs on it like "One Weak" and "7
Words". If you like the screams and hard-core of the music. I would suggest
this CD to you!
CD came out in 1997. This would be my third favorite out of the three. Some of
the well known songs on this CD would be "Be Quiet and Drive (Far
Away)" or "My Own Summer (Shove It)". This CD is so similar to
the first one, with the screams and hard-core music. I would definitely suggest
is the newest CD, coming in as First in my books. This CD contains a wide range
of sound. From songs like "Elite", which is hard-core, to
"Teenage", which shows the softer side of Chino. If loudness was 5
stars and 1 star being soft, I would rank this CD as being ****. At times being
hard and soft at other times.
there you have it. For all, I would definitely recommend checking out the
Deftones. And remember if they are in your area, it's so worth the 15-18 dollars
to see them! That's all for now. KoRn will be the next review. Until then stay
cool and keep rocking! If you want to check out more on the Deftones be sure to
